Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (about 5 rotations)
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin

Preparation

  1. Trim your pork tenderloin of any silver skin, as this can be difficult to remove later.
  2. Combine olive oil, mustard, minced garlic, pepper, soy sauce and maple syrup. Place pork tenderloin in a shallow dish and make sure it is well-coated with the marinade. Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove pork tenderloin from marinade, and set aside. Transfer remaining marinade to a small saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for five minutes while stirring to ensure it doesn't burn.
  4. Place tenderloin in an uncovered roasting pan on a shelf in the bottom 1/3 of your oven. Bake 20-35 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 145-160 degrees, and let rest for 3 minutes. This will give you a tender, juicy pork tenderloin that is slightly pink in the middle.
  5. Slice the tenderloin and serve hot with the garlic-maple sauce drizzled over it.
